I identify with Sophie too. Exterior that doesn't match interior, and I also
identify with the way her talent keeps throwing out curved balls. I often
find out I know something about writing I didn;t know I knew. I don't feel
as powerful as Sophie is/was though. Then again, I know how Polly felt about
rewriting reality, but I'm not as stubborn as Polly.
